Converse is a brand that generations upon generations have grown up wearing since 1908. Marquis M. Converse founded the brand and claims to be America’s original sports company, which is a controversial statement amongst others. One thing is for sure, Converse most known sneaker is the Chuck Taylor All Star which is a Basketball shoe that released in 1923. Over the years, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star has sold over 750 Million pairs in 144 countries.

Converse obtained a new model from badminton champion Jack Purcell. The Converse Jack Purcell was bought from B.F. Goodrich in 1972, but is known as one of Converses classic sneakers.

Converse History


Although Converse went to other sports and made special kicks, their roots have stayed with Basketball. Many NBA All Stars have worn models like the Leather Pro, All Star Pro and the Weapon. Some (but not limited to) NBA players that laced Converse up are: Julius “Dr. J” Erving, Larry Bird, and Magic Johnson. Michael Jordan was a big fan of Converse in College, and actually wanted to sign a deal.

By the end of the 1980s, Converse started to struggle with sales and in the late 1990s Converse was struggling financially. In 2003 Converse sold to Nike for $305 Million.
